Gotlandsbolaget launches second zero-fossil-fuel project

October 6, 2022

Gotlandsbolaget is launching its Gotland Hydrocat ferry concept, the world’s first large-scale, high-speed catamaran powered by fossil-free hydrogen.

This is the second vessel in the Horizon Series – Gotland Company’s concept for next-generation vessels.

The vessels are designed to be powered by fossil-free hydrogen. However, both vessels have a multi-fuel solution which allows them to be run on other fossil-free fuels with a relatively simple adjustment.

The work on developing all the necessary technology continues, and the ambition is to order Gotland Hydrocat by 2025 and have it in service by 2030.

Gotland Company has developed the model and the design of Gotland Hydrocat in partnership with Austal.
